Kitchen Wiring: how to hide

DiggsStudioOctober 29, 2012

We're doing a complete renovation of the kitchen. We have a surge protector with coffee maker, light, television, and cablebox plugged into it (because when you turn these off, they aren't really off). We're having the tv cable moved, and we'll get a new small flat screen tv on a wall bracket. Is there a way to HIDE all these wires? The new counter here will be butcherblock. Thank you!

Is this area standard 24" deep counter, or an island or peninsula?

What is underneath the counters?

What is on the adjacent wall?

I think we need to know exactly how many items plug in, how many have transformers, and physically how they are sitting on the counter.

Hi Julie,
Thanks for responding to our issue here.

The peninsula will be 38" wide (butcherblock).
The rest of the counter will be 25 1/2" with 9" bump out (window will be flush w/counter) behind the sink (granite).
Dishwasher under the peninsula counter. Everything else under the counter is cabinetry.
The wall will be painted with a waterproof paint.

We have an electric strip w/:tv (plug &cable), cablebox (plug &cable), coffee maker (might replace with bodum French press) Thanks!!!
